Apple rules above the clouds

Gogo is one of the most popular and successful in-flight internet service providers in the world. Now, the company has given some statistics on devices used to connect to its in-flight networks.

The statistics show that 67% of the devices used to connect to Gogo during flights are smartphones and tablets. Tablets are the most preferred device connecting to its network at 35 percent, followed by laptop at 33 percent and smartphones at 33 percent.

The most common mobile operating system that connects to the network during flights comes from Apple with the iPad being the most common device overall. 84% of all devices that connect to the Gogo network during the flight run iOS while 16% use Android.

BlackBerry and Windows Phone/Mobile devices each make up less than 1% of in-flight connections.


The most common task performed using these devices in-flight is average web surfing. Gogo says that passengers are accessing their personal e-mail accounts, using social media sites, checking sports scores, and shopping. Business travelers more often use their work e-mail and finalize reports, listing those two activities as their most frequent tasks during the flight.

With Apple devices so popular during flights, it would come as no surprise that Safari is the most popular browser to access Gogo networks. The second most popular browser is Internet Explorer followed by Chrome and Firefox.
 
While Apple devices are the most common that access Gogo in-flight, Android is catching up. In 2011, only 3.2% of devices accessing the network were Android and so far in 2013, Android accounted for 16% of usage.

So you are saying, Apple product owners waste more money. We all knew that already. More useless information spewage by Tony.

Lets see going from a Galaxy S, HTC EVO, and various other phones to a Glaxy SIII and even other products, I have had to buy only one charger and car adapter which is $5-$15. Apple users, buy dozens of different chargers that cost $30-$100 each, but wait, they have to buy this all over again if they switched to the new iPhone5. Apple Marketing team is truly a bunch of genious or Apple owners are truly blind. And to think, my example is only phone chargers.

Dock connector chargers cost $30-$100 and people buy dozens of them, really? And a Lightning connector that comes with an iPhone 5 or can be had on Monoprice or Amazon for just a few bucks, also $100 I'm assuming.

I know hyperbole and stretching the truth is a thing on the internet, but geez...
